Keto One Pot Spanish Chicken

Keto One Pot Spanish Chicken | Keto Arroz Con Pollo

This week we bring you a Keto One Pot Spanish Chicken recipe.

This week we bring you another delicious Ketofied recipe; this dish was inspired by the classic latin dish Arroz Con Pollo which means Rice (Arroz) with Chicken (Pollo) but since rice isn’t keto friendly we modified the dish using riced cauliflower.

We also used chicken thighs because we find them to be moist and tender versus the dryness often associated with using chicken breast.  We also find that chicken thighs are lower in protein, so it helps with the macros on keto.
